Yesterday, I was in Athens, GA meeting Dr. Steve “Number 22” Henikoff, who was visiting the Department of Genetics at the University of Georgia. Steve Henikoff is a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Investigator and works at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, WA.

On Wednesday morning we talked science over breakfast before I dropped him off at the department to talk to various professors and students through out the day. At the end of his day in Athens, he gave a packed talk to the department about his research on histone variants, nucleosome inheritance, and epigenetic inheritance.

On an interesting note, Steve Henikoff and PT author Reed Cartwright (with Luca Comai) have back to back papers coming out in November’s Plant Cell on HOTHEAD reversion, which Reed will expand on in a week or so.

We must find some way to have Professor Steve Steve sign the Steve list.

I’m curious: would he count as one or two Steves?

Yes. In fact I started that rumor.

I imagine a thumbprint would suffice.

God suggests: We must find some way to have Professor Steve Steve sign the Steve list.

Reed Cartwright reported that Professor Steve Steve holds the B. Amboo Chair in Creatoinformatics at the University of Ediacara, although he is not currently listed as a faculty member at the University web site.

I can not find where the Professor completed his degrees, but his thesis on the mating habits of the rufous-throated creationists of northern Alabama suggests it at least one Ph.D. may have been in the south. The Professor’s teaching load is reportedly high and his publishing prodigious. At some point the Professor might post his CV? From his posts, the Professor travels frequently and regularly attends major scientific meetings, actually he attends more meetings than many active University professors. We have evidence of the Professor actively doing field work, although some of his research has caused him some problems.

The professor appears to have all the trappings of a working scientist and I see no reason the Professor’s name could not be added to the list. Perhaps Professor Steve Steve should be Steve 666.

Coming up fast, the Steve-o-meter is currently displaying 649. I wonder if there’s enough time to change my name.
